Dear Editor, Homoarginine deficiency is an emerging cardiovascular risk factor, but homoarginine metabolism may also impact bone turnover because (1) homoarginine is a known inhibitor of alkaline phosphatases (AP), (2) homoarginine may increase nitric oxide (NO) synthesis with subsequent relevance for bone formation, and (3) homoarginine is critical for… (More)
